Default Pittsburgh among best cities for new graduates

Here is the link:

The BEST And WORST Cities For The Newly Graduated

As these rankings go, this one wasn't very informative or particularly interesting. Still Huffington Post is widely read and this is a nice sort of list to be on these days.

But the problem is that outside of the specialized fields of healthcare and education, the job prospects for new graduates in Pittsburgh is not that great.

Relatively speaking, I think it is also a decent place for business and professional services.

Thanks for that well reasoned and astute analysis!

Seems like the "Best" cities are those with, relatively, low unemployment, high education levels and lower cost of living. Now, what Mayor's age has to do with anything is beyond me.

Huffington Post isn't a real newspaper. I don't think Pittsburgh wants the type of people that read the "HuffPo" to be moving in next to them.

Actually, I'm a "HuffPo" reader, and I'd love some more of those people moving in next to me.
